Info for Dixie Chicken (Remastered Deluxe Edition)

Little Feat - Dixie Chicken (Deluxe Edition) Little Feat have indeed led a storied life ever since they formed in 1969. From then on, their unconventional signature of earthy, organic appeal and polished, first-rate musicianship wrapped around eclectic and memorable songs-clearly delivered as an authentic labor of love-has been a lasting fixture on the musical landscape. As American as apple pie-and rock 'n roll itself-Feat's music transcends boundaries, a freewheeling fusion of California rock and Dixie-inflected funk-boogie. In the mix as well are strains of folk, blues, rockabilly, country and jazz, inventing a hybrid sound that is truly Little Feat's own.

Dixie Chicken (Deluxe Edition) includes the original album remastered and recut from the original tapes, alongside previously unreleased studio outtakes and demos, and complete unreleased live shows. It’s a treasure trove of material for their feverish fan base, and the first ever deep dive into one of the most influential bands from the 70’s Warner catalog.

"Following Roy Estrada's departure during the supporting tour for Sailin' Shoes, Lowell George became infatuated with New Orleans R&B and mellow jamming, all of which came to a head on their third album, 1973's Dixie Chicken. Although George is firmly in charge - he dominates the record, writing or co-writing seven of the 10 songs - this is the point where Little Feat found its signature sound as a band, and no album they would cut from this point on was too different from this seductive, laid-back, funky record. But no album would be quite as good, either, since Dixie Chicken still had much of the charming lyrical eccentricities of the first two albums, plus what is arguably George's best-ever set of songs. Partially due to the New Orleans infatuation, the album holds together better than Sailin' Shoes and George takes full advantage of the band's increased musical palette, writing songs that sound easy but are quite sophisticated, such as the rolling "Two Trains," the gorgeous, shimmering "Juliette," the deeply soulful and funny "Fat Man in the Bathtub" and the country-funk of the title track, which was covered nearly as frequently as "Willin'." In addition to "Walkin' All Night," a loose bluesy jam by Barrere and Bill Payne, the band also hauls out two covers which fit George's vibe perfectly: Allan Toussaint's slow burner "On Your Way Down" and "Fool Yourself," which was written by Fred Tackett, who later joined a reunited Feat in the '80s. It all adds up to a nearly irresistible record, filled with great songwriting, sultry grooves, and virtuosic performances that never are flashy. Little Feat, along with many jam bands that followed, tried to top this album, but they never managed to make a record this understated, appealing and fine." (Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG)

Little Feat
The long-running funky Southern boogie act Little Feat have been making slick, genre-defying music since their debut out of Southern California in 1969. Melding rock, blues, R&B, and country, Little Feat drew inspiration from Southern-fried blues rock -- and yet they originated from Los Angeles with songwriter and guitarist Lowell George at the helm.

Naming themselves "Feat" in tribute to the Beatles, Little Feat at first consisted of Lowell George and Bill Payne, who played in Frank Zappa's Mothers Of Invention. They teamed up with former Mothers of Invention bassist Roy Estrada and drummer Richie Hayward (The Factory, Fraternity Of Man). Zappa famously helped Little Feat get signed to Warner Bros. Records, and the band released their self-titled debut album in 1971. A sophomore album, Sailin' Shoes, followed in 1972.

That same year, Little Feat brought in a new bassist, Kenny Gradney. The band also added a second guitarist, Paul Barrere, and drummer Sam Clayton. Adopting a New Orleans funk sound, Little Feat released Dixie Chicken in 1973 and Feats Don't Fail Me Now (a tribute to the Fats Waller song) in 1974.

Little Feat went on to release 1975's jazz-fusion album The Last Record Album and 1977's Time Loves A Hero. In 1978, they released the double-live album Waiting For Columbus, followed by 1979's Down On The Farm. Around this time, George embarked on a short-lived solo career, releasing the album Thanks, I'll Eat It Here. George died of a heart attack in 1979, and Little Feat would disband until 1988 when Payne, Barrere, Hayward, Gradney, and Clayton re-formed the group, adding vocalist/guitarist Craig Fuller and guitarist Fred Tackett.

Back together again, the newly re-formed Little Feat released Let It Roll in 1988 -- the album eventually went gold. Three more reunion albums followed: Representing The Mambo (1989), Shake Me Up (1991), and Ain't Had Enough Fun (1995). Ain't Had Enough Fun featured singer Shaun Murphy, who stayed on for 1998's Under The Radar and 2000's Chinese Work Songs.

Little Feat released a handful of compilations and live recordings over the next few years, including 2002's Ripe Tomatos Volume One, 2006's The Best of Little Feat, and 2011's 40 Feat: The Hot Tomato Anthology 1971-2011. In 2003, Little Feat released Kickin' It At The Barn, their first album for their own indie label, Hot Tomato Records. Rocky Mountain Jam arrived in 2007, and Join The Band followed in 2008 on Proper Records.

In 2010, Little Feat founding member Richie Hayward passed away. Little Feat continued touring with Gabe Ford on percussion. Little Feat released a new album in 2012. In October 2019, a few years after a liver cancer diagnosis, Barrere passed away. He'd written some of the band's best-known songs, including "All That You Dream," "Time Loves a Hero" and "Old Folks Boogie."

Scott Sharrard, who had filled in for Barrere during Little Feat's 50th Anniversary tour, was brought on as a full-time band member.
